The Ragmud Collection: Books by Aminah Robinson. I really have enjoyed feeling and looking at the quilts of Aminah Robinson. I say feel because the book itself is padded, not with fabric but still it has substance and adds to the effect of opening up a quilt. But this is more than a quilt book it is a history book that is etched in fabric. I love all the found art pieces the large stitches and the colorful fabrics that she used. I love the "collection" of thoughts that are embroidered into this book. I have enjoy reading it as much as looking at the pictures. In a preface, Robinson tells readers that Poindexter Village was built to replace a shantytown in Columbus, Ohio, a stopping place for blacks moving up from the South. Poring over the scenes, children will see history in action. Once opened, the book can be set up to stretch out and be displayed. It's a sure thing that the ribbons supplied to hold the package together will seldom be tied again. by Amy Gilman, Barbara Tannenbaum.
